On Oct. 2 at 7:30 p.m., WKSU-FM, Kent State University’s public radio station, is celebrating its 70th anniversary with NPR host Steve Inskeep. Guests can attend the event from their home or from the Aut-O-Rama Twin Drive-In Theatre in North Ridgeville, OH.
Radio personality Steve Inskeep hosts NPR’s Morning Edition, which is featured every weekday from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. on WKSU’s program schedule. He is also the author of the new book Imperfect Union. Inskeep, known for his interviews with presidents and congressional leaders, will have a live, virtual presentation at the event about democracy in America, leaving time to answer questions from the audience.
The 70th celebration is hosted by the Friends of WKSU, an independent 501c3 which supports the work of the WKSU newsroom. This year, the organization is seeking to become more involved in fundraising for the station, and it found an opportunity in an anniversary event.
